URLs allow you to get in keywords or phrases that you want your website to be found for. As such use proper URLs like:

1on1wholesale.co.uk/whats-new-in-recently-to-our-collection/

Add Alt Tags To Images

Alt Tags in images are a great way to help you improve your website ranking. The descriptive text helps search engines find what the image is about. It also can help to add keywords to the source code of a page.
